The 86th Annual MAY LUNCHEON was held on May 7th at Riviera Country Club was a happy spring event.
The social hour featured colorful poinciana cocktails (champagne & cranberry juice ) which all members enjoyed. With more than 110 CORAL GABLES GARDEN CLUB members in attendance, the Riviera Country Club hosted a beautiful celebration of trees.
Chairman Judi Welsh welcomed guests & introduced her Committee. Each table held an individual money tree plant with tiny colorful birds perched on branches. Fabulous picture hats in brilliant hues of hot pink and orange were both part of the decor and a gift for each member.
Lunch was the chef’s specialty of hand-rolled ravioli stuffed with shiitake mushrooms in a cream sauce topped with breast of chicken, spring vegetables, couscous, and Caesar salad. Wonderful desserts of caramel sundaes & trays of Riviera homemade signature cranberry oatmeal cookies were a great finish to an impressive meal. At each table, one lucky lady took home the beautiful centerpiece tree.
Jeannett Slesnick acted as the official photographer.
Margaret Serropian was in charge of entertainment.
Also on the committee were Betsy Tilghman, Mari Arnold, Blanche Brownell, Candy Cosmides, Helen Hinds and Hallie Yanno.
